This is one post I can’t claim credit for as it is a recipe from my Great Grandma in Australia, but this old-fashioned favourite just goes to show you don’t need new fancy recipes to enjoy a healthy treat. This is low in saturated fat compared to most cakes but still has a deliciously MOIST texture and sweet taste. Hope you enjoy!

½ cup of Chopped Dates
½ Cup of Chopped Walnuts
½ Cup of Sugar
½ Teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda
